Try building both types of telesope Reflector or refractor. I`ve constructed both styles over the years and each presents it`s own set of problems for you to deal with. I`d get a hold of the Edmund Scientific Co. book on Home built telescopes (They have a web site.) for lots of useful & cheap ideas on building scopes and mounts. Some of the material is dated but there is nothing I have found so useful since I began playing around with optics in the early 1960`s.
